Faded dotted gradient

Good morning!

Ugh it's Monday isn't it -_- Welp might as well just jump right in right? Work is being kind of bleh for me lately but hopefully this funk will end soon ;) 

Anyways I took to Twitter last night for some more nailspiration and the lovely Inky from Inky Whiskers Musings let me know that my blog has been seriously lacking in the dotticure area ;) LOL And I couldn't agree more! I actually did two dotticure designs last night and this one just happened to be one of them! I've been wanting to try a faded dotted gradient thingy for a while and definitely digging the results... take a look! :) 


Colors used:
- Maybelline Color Show Green With Envy
- Black Acrylic Paint










I just think this is so cool! I was afraid while I was doing it because I didn't think it would actually look like a gradient but I think it actually does.. Score for having something actually turn out like it looked in my head! LOL

The look was really easy to create. I just painted my nails with my base color, then I used a large and medium dotting tool for the bigger dots and a toothpick for the smaller dots at the top. All I did was place the dots at random getting smaller as I got closer to my cuticle. See easy peasy! :) 

Oh and if you haven't visited Miss Inky's page then you totally have to! She is SO sweet and her nails are always fab! So go show her some love!! :) 

So what do you guys think?

Thanks for reading :)
